Liberty High School junior Ashton Herrild took home the top prize in the Drug Free Community Coalition’s 2014 “Influence the Choice” student video contest.
Herrild’s two-minute video encouraged peers to “live for the nights you’ll never forget,” rather than “the nights you won’t remember,” and live a drug-free life. His overall win came with a prize of $800.
More than 100 Issaquah School District students worked to submit 54 videos encouraging their peers to say no to prescription drugs, alcohol and marijuana. The students spent an estimated 400 hours crafting the videos.
A panel of judges narrowed the field to 10 video winners, representing a first-, second- and third-place finisher in the categories of drugs, alcohol and marijuana, as well as an overall winner.
The Drug Free Community Coalition is a sub committee of the Issaquah Community Network. Learn more here.
The Issaquah Press will begin posting one winning video per day on its Facebook page starting today.
